Vanessa's Angels

Vanessa needs our help. As you know, she has been faced with this battle against colon cancer for the fourth time now, and this time, the battle is even harder for her to fight. Her body was not responding to the chemo so her doctor has stopped her cancer treatment while they get her organs back on track. Her kidney's are operating at 1%, even after Dialysis this week, which is making her scenario very scary. Her medical bills are piling through the roof, but the amazing person she is, she hasn't once asked for anything, not a dime, she just keeps saying she will figure it out. She just wants our prayers, it's the only thing she asks for. However I know as friends, DZ sisters, and supporters, we can do more. She's receiving dose's of medicine called Salrius which are $18,000 per dose, she is getting 5 over the next few weeks... not to metion the days and nights that she has been in the hospital with countless other procedures and treatments. 

If you do not personally know Vanessa, all I can say that you're life would have been positively impacted if she was in it.  She is so incredibly kind, passionate, funny, unique, and being in her presence leaves an imprint on your life one way or another.  She is a rare gem, hard to find and impossible to replace.

Please join this movement, all the love and support is giving her strength which she so desperately needs! #teamvanessa

Please send letters of love to her hospital room at: 

1250 16th Street
Santa Monica CA 90404
(as of today she is in room 4208)
